That Wicker Man moment

Some of you may recall the 1970s cult classic The Wicker Man starring Christopher Lee as the sinister Lord of Summer Isle. A recent piece in the Longridge & Ribble Valley News by Gillian Whalley described our own Lord of Bowland as Lord of the Fells.  Of course, in the Wicker Man, the Lord of Summer Isle is more than the laird. He also acts as the high priest of the “old religion", a pagan faith which involved lots of dancing and not much clothing which earned the film an X rating.

The weather has not been conducive to such activities but who knows when spring arrives? Check the Festival Bowland calendar for news of events and check Google for news of 'The Lord of the Fells'.
